Verse 1

A penny for your thoughts
A dollar for your prayers
Ten dollars for your blessing and a healing
If you ain't got no money
Get to stealing
How would you feel if that's the only way he would an-
Swer?
Still take it for granted
Every-day you make it a habit
Not to say thank you
You just expect it
[Oh]

Chorus

Are you grateful
Have a little money, have a little car
But you complain cause you want more
Be grateful
For the little things everything you need
Everyday your living everyday you breathe
[Just Be]

Verse 2

You been waiting on somebody to love you
Praying for somebody to kiss and hug you
You been doing everything you need to
[Hold onto the past cause]
The one you prayed for don't seem like he'll come
You want Him now
Been waiting long enough
If you've known the things you'd been protected to from
So be

Chorus

Are you grateful?
Have a little money, have a little car

But you complain cuhzz you want more
[Ooooh]
Be grateful
For the little things everything you need
Everyday your living everyday you breathe
[Just Be]

Verse 3

Be
[Be]
What you gotta do to see
[See]
Can you count your blessings?
[Blessings]
I know you've heard that before
But sometimes you need to be reminded why
Why you even worry at all
Cause everyday it'll work out sooo be

Chorus

Are you grateful?
Have a little money, have a little car
But you complain cause you want more
[Ooooh]
Be grateful
For the little things everything you need
Everyday your living everyday you breathe
[Just Be]

[Be Grateful]
Oh
[Be Grateful]
There always someone worse off than you
[Be Grateful x2]
They really rather be in your shoes
[Be Grateful x2]
The One that you've been dreaming about
[Be Grateful x2]
When there's a problem He'll work it out
